Sweet Honey In The Rock is an a cappella ensemble of
African American women. Members are Ysaye Maria
Barnwell, Nitanju Bolade Casel, Aisha Kahlil, Carol
Maillard, Louise Robinson, and Shirley Childress Saxton.
The group comprises a rotating cast for many years. The
group name has its origin in a quotation from the
Bible. From Psalm 81:16 comes the promise to a people
of being fed by honey out of the rock.
